31 Days of Halloween - Day 23

Hey Hot Stuff- going my way?  Isn't this image from Stamp It Crazy for the challenge this week just a hoot caw?


Alex's oldest just finished up and graduated from his Driver's Ed class.  Obviously there is a loooooooooooot more practice driving to be done before the actual license, but it is still a pretty big moment.  This image was perfect for Alex to make him a graduation/congratulations type card for the occasion.


And a reminder to NEVER pick up hitchhikers- EVER! 

This easel card is made using some Memory Box Blackbird paper and then some wonderful bat embellishments Alex was RAKed.  The bat is the corner is metal and so wonderful that I had to do a LOT of prodding to get Alex to use it.  It was perfect, but she was so worried that then it would be used! Silly human!
As you can see, Alex made a deal with the Devil herself and broke down and purchased the drippy goo border punch by MS.  I am very proud, she made it ALMOST 2 years before cracking.  A friend reminded Alex that even the Devil can hire talented help, so we are thinking of it as "supporting the minions".


Be certain to check out what the rest of the DT did with this image and enter the challenge for your chance to win it!

Happy Halloween!
Edgar
